    Gold starred two songs with our band. First time we gold starred as a band, and twice in one night.

    did my first serious drum session this past weekend. learned a few things.

    1 - i suck on the drums
    2 - after sweating that much after 2 songs, i am out of shape and should've quit smoking sooner
    3 - practice does help. started in the 50's - 60's (on easy..........ok, stop laughing) and ended up getting in the upper 80's after a few songs.


    what can i say, i'm an uncoordinated pollock.

    I finally broke my bass pedal!

    I don't know about you guys, but I derive a sense of pride from that, haha.

    Firstly, congrats to you. :)

    I'm not sure I'd be able to get any sort of " Artist" accolade. Mainly due to the fact that I don't know anyone who lives nearby that plays RB and plays beyond Medium on a chosen instrument. :rolleyes:

    Anyhoo.. my victory for the week so far is my 47th Gold Star (of, I think, 111 tracks) on the guitar. So I should really update my signature. Its lagging behind a bit.

    And I will beat Run To The Hills to get through the pesky Hard Drum Tour.... eventually. :mad:

    Beat GGaHT on expert last night, my last on disk song and one of the four songs I hadn't beaten. RTL, Thrasher, or Snow tonight?

    I had finally beaten GG&HT a couple of weeks ago and decided to play it again today. I scored about 40K higher than last time.

    I know that "I think I'm Paranoid" is an easy one to GS, but it felt so damn good! :)
    I play on Hard, but on Sunday afternoon I thought "what the hell, I'll give it a shot"
    99 % first run through, got the FC on the 2nd run. I think my brain is starting to read the charts better, IDK. I played the rest of the first tier on expert, didn't get any other GS, but I know with enough practice I could probably beat a few more in a matter of weeks.

    The 5 gold stars just look so damn good on my menu!

    That was the first song I gold starred also, and it felt great getting the GS and FC at the same time. I only have 3 or 4 other GS's also, but I'm very close to a few others (less than 5k points). Gratz!

    GarraaaarrrrrgRAAAAWR !
    I've GS'd a few songs, but for the life of me, I just *can't* GS that. Can't even FC it, and it's the damn easiest song in the game... But I always make ONE mistake (most often on those B - Y - RB parts in the end.

    I'm starting to really become angry with it and myself :mad:.

    I finally beat RttH on expert drums. :)
    If I had a decent drum set though (My yellow pad is starting to drop notes like crazy, and my red pad sometimes double hits) I'd probably be able to 5* it...
    Right now... due to my crappy drum set, I can only get like 3.75 stars. :(

    finally broke out of my comfort zone, and started the transition from medium to hard.

    it bites now, i'm still trying to get hard down, and yet, medium is now too slow.

    i'm in a state of limbo

    I gets better! I very rarely play anything on hard anymore unless I'm online with some friends and it's a song I know even their overdrive can't carry me through. And the charts go soooo slow. I used to think they were too fast when I started on hard also. You'll get used to it though. I started the game on medium as well, and the transition is tough for a bit, especially getting used to the extra bass. Keep at it though!

    I beat Expert Vox. I was really surprised Boston took only 6 tries....

    I got my second gold star on drums! Now I know that Brass in pocket and I.T.I. Paranoid are about as easy as the gold stars get, but I only got the game in late may.

    And I spent the first few weeks on guitar only.

    And my Ps3 went in for repairs (3 weeks) at the end of June.

    And I went on a week long vacation at the end of July.

    The sad part is my hard tour is sitting at 126/127 :(
    Some day I'll just have to sit down and spend some quality time with the practice mode. I don't even have to say the name of the song do I?

    Silver, obviously.

    J/K. Must be RTTH, like a whole bunch of other people.

    Filled in some GS gaps in the first three tiers on Guitar. Next up: Creep (I'm short like 2k there), Tom Sawyer (short 3k there), Paranoid (4k), Enter Sandman and Celebrity Skin (5k).

    Also, still need to 5* Dead On Arrival and RttH. I can get not 5*ing RttH, but FOB? I don't remember it being THAT hard...
